Heads up from the Grand River Conservation Authority!
Northern portions of the Grand River watershed received more than 100mm of rainfall during the early hours of Friday morning. Flows in the Grand River have responded with near record levels, unseen since December 2008. Water levels in the large reservoirs have stabilized and discharges will remain high into the weekend.
Please exercise extreme caution around all water bodies. Banks adjacent to rivers and creeks are very slippery at this time and, when combined with current weather conditions, pose a serious hazard. Parents are encouraged to keep their children and pets away from all watercourses.
